Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-01-02  Sylvester: Is it over after 19. g4 or is 21. Rc6 the winning move?
Dec-01-02  pawntificator: I don't think it was a winning move in this case but a losing move, 23...fxg4
Dec-01-02  Sylvester: Gligoric seems to agree, he says the last hope lies in the exchange sacrifice 23...Re6 24. Rxd7 Rxd7 25. Bxf5.
Dec-02-02  PVS: Was this a tournament game?
Dec-02-02  Sylvester: Yes, it was at Hastings 1956/57.
